Assessment at HVIA


Person responsible: Mrs T Crompton


EYFS- Nursery and Reception

In EYFS we use the National Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. This can be found here

In Nursery and Reception classes we use an online learning journey system to track progress of our children. This is called EARWIG http://earwigacademic.com/

From 2017-18 parents in these year groups have access to their child's  journal via a log in that they will be personally given.

It is imperative that all EYFS parents keep the office staff up to date with their email addresses so that this system can be used to it's full advantage.

Our on-going formative assessments are based around the EYFS curriculum. This is the document that HVI academy follow to ensure a broad and balanced curriculum is taught.

Assessment System for the New National Curriculum 2014

With the removal of 'levels' to track a child’s progress, schools are expected to  design their own system to track progress. At Hill View Infant School we have a new system for assessing pupil progress and attainment in the new national curriculum.

The system is based around the statutory requirements for each year group as laid out in the programmes of study in the new national curriculum. Instead of assessing against NC levels the system allows assessment of statutory requirements / objectives in reference to particular programmes of study.

The below booklet is aimed at providing the necessary information to parents so that you feel fully aware of your own child’s progress and attainment at our school.

Parent Assessment Booklet 2018-20

Statutory Assessments:

Children are assessed at different points during their primary school career; these assessments are statutory and are reported to the Department for Education and also to parents.  At Kingston Park, we are committed to making these assessments as relaxed and stress-free as possible. Statutory Assessments take place during the Summer Term.
